This short loop can be repeated in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction for additional mileage. Consider that trails look different when run in reverse direction, thus providing an entirely new look to the route. The route is described counterclockwise. Be prepared to descend from the outset; no warm-up on flat terrain. Head down switchbacks and a series of steps to the canyon floor. Cross a footbridge over Cherry Creek, and continue on singletrack with rather technical, rocky footing.
